Tacoma Musical Playhouse has announced the 19th season of musical theater in Tacoma. The 2012-2013 season will include six Broadway-style musicals on the TMP Mainstage and three family-friendly productions from the Tacoma Children's Musical Theater.
The 2012-13 TMP Mainstage season:
THE SOUND OF MUSIC
THE MUSICAL OF MUSICALS (The Musical!)
9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL
SHOUT! The Mod Musical
Throughout the year, patrons can enhance their theater-going experience by attending the six preview presentations entitled Behind the Curtain! at TMP. On the Sunday evening prior to each of the six Mainstage openings (March 24, 2013 for Legally Blonde), TMP cast, crew, directors and designers provide a free educational and interactive preview packed with facts about the show, its history, this production, and song and dance highlights from the show.
The Tacoma Children's Musical Theater continues to grow as it enters its exciting seventh season at TMP! Presented by our Mainstage adult performers, these fully-staged musicals based on classic and children's literature are geared toward young and old alike, and are a great way to introduce young members to the theatergoing process. These productions are a great way for TMP to offer additional family-friendly opportunities to supplement our regular Mainstage programming. The 2012-13 TCMT season of shows will be announced in June 2012. Stay tuned! For teachers, all TCMT productions will offer additional mid-week student group matinee performances this season. See the website at www.tmp.org/groups.aspx in June and then contact the Box Office to reserve your student groups early because these performances do sell out well in advance!
All of these performances will take place at Tacoma Musical Playhouse, 7116 6th Avenue in Tacoma. All seating for TMP Mainstage and TCMT productions is reserved, so advance purchase is strongly recommended. New Season Subscription Packages for the Mainstage go on sale June 5, 2012 and range in price from only $95-$145 for all six shows. Current subscribers should look for their renewal packets in the mail in late April.
Single show tickets for Mainstage and TCMT productions become available online or through the TMP Box Office on August 7, 2012. Single ticket prices for 2012-13 Mainstage productions range from $20-$29, and TCMT tickets will range from $12-$19. Group rates are also available. For single tickets or more information, please visit www.tmp.org or call the TMP Box Office at 253-565-6867 beginning August 7th.
